City Cape(r)

I finally finished knitting my first cape.  It has been a major time commitment, but my upcoming trip to SF was my motivation. I wanted to finish the cape to show it off, while walking the streets of SF next week.  Lately, the temperatures in Northern California have been unseasonably warm for this time of year.  I hope the fog rolls in next week and I can take my cape on an adventure.

The Cape Coat designed by Debbie Bliss published in The Big Easy,  appears on pages 21 and 22.  The knitting pattern calls for Debbie Bliss Luxury Tweed Chunky, but I decided to knit with  Noro Kama 26% wool, 25%silk, 25% alpaca, 12% kid mohair and 12% angora.  I also shortened the length measurement by 1-1/2 inches.

Psst…I neglected to mention, last week I decided to take a daycation at Sea Cliff Beach.  The coast has taken a pounding the last month.  Here are some photos of my day.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    Your cape is just lovely, love the colorway, and bet it was the perfect wrap for San Francisco in February.
